It is not our intention to present a thorough theoretical treatment on mylonites and related rocks in this atlas. This can be found in several textbooks (e.g. Shelley 1993; Snoke et al. 1998; Blenkinsop 2000; Vernon 2004; Passchier & Trouw 2005) and in many articles referred to in these books. Especially the excellent photographic atlas by Snoke et al. (1998) gives an extensive overview of current ideas on nomenclature and processes related to fault rocks.
